Authentic Viking Jewelry for Men
Throughout history, the Vikings wore jewelry to show their pride and status. Norse Jewelry lines with Viking Warrior are designed to be bold, powerful, and stunning pieces. Both men and women often wore jewelry, and among the poor, jewelry was often forged of bronze, pewter, and animal bones.
Throughout history, the Norsemen and Vikings wore jewelry not just to accessorize, but to demonstrate their status. Both men and women often wore metal embellishments and jewelry.
The kinds which could be worn were usually stratified among socioeconomic classes. Among the poor, jewelry was often forged of bronze, pewter, and animal bones. Pewter and bones in particular were easy to scratch and carve designs into even without any metalworking skills.
More wealthy Vikings might use steel and silver, while wealthy individuals wore gold and even jewelry with precious stones. Men tended to wear a brooch on the right shoulder, while women might wear a brooch or cloak-fastener on either side.
Viking Jewellery Artefacts Sometimes Available
The Vikings lived from roughly 700 AD to 1200 AD, and were famed warriors, sailors, adventurers, and traders in their time. Originating first in the nations we think of as Scandinavia (countries such as Denmark, Sweden, and Norway), they explored as far as the Americas, Mongolia, and Africa. Historians have even identified some metal swords and jewelry in Viking burial sites with origins in the Middle East. Much about what Vikings wore for jewelry has been extrapolated from archaeological findings in battlefields, graves, sunken ships, and family heirlooms passed down through generations.
From time to time, Viking Warrior will offer single pieces of real artifacts sourced from the UK and Scandinavia through our jeweler partners. These pieces have been independently authenticated and graded for purity, as well as aged. We love to offer our customers the ability to get the real deal.
Real Viking Jewelry

Primarily Celtic, Gaelic, and British Isles influence can be seen shaping Viking art patterns, as well as the geometric patterns common in the middle east, and strong folkloric emphasis from Russia and the Baltic nations.
Viking Jewelry Bracelets: Torcs or Not?
One important question we often get asked is whether bracelets were always torcs, or if leather and other materials were used. Believe it or not, some have even ventured to say they didn't think Vikings and Norse warriors wore bracelets at all! But there is plenty of archaeological evidence of both torc-style arm rings and bracelets. Rope, leather, and charms were also popular on bracelets. While we do not offer many charms, we do offer many Viking style bracelets.
